"With The World Before, the Syberia saga returns to its best and makes us forget the disappointing Syberia 3. This time, the few technical shortcomings are no longer disabling...

Decades ago, Syberia 1 and 2 enchanted me with its story and lovely narrative. This game captures the same feeling. I have a grand time playing this game. The voice acting, the themes, all woven together in an engaging, if somewhat somber, story. It's just like revisiting a good old friend after a long time, and sharing stories of love, and loss. Recommended if you like adventure games, either old school, or the newer ones like the Tell Tales series / Life is Strange.
